This is a favorite recipe in our house, my mother got it from the lady who taught her lamaze, Kathy Kelly. I have made this with Splenda replacing the sugar in the past and no one could tell the difference in taste. I recommend placing a cookie sheet or something similar underneath in case the loaf pan overflows.
